Would it make the tuition go up for all students? Could this lead to more people not going to school? Why give them more money if the school will only need to take it back? Will paying college athletes really help them? A lot of people say they do not go to college because of how much it cost.
This means students are going to school but with less money to pay for it which results in an uptick in student debt (Berman). A study done in September which was published by the Brookings Institution found evidence that large share of the increase in the number of students who are having difficulty paying off their loans is tied to the students borrowing to go to for-profit schools. There are many other factors that play a role in the growth of student debt. Many people believe that it is the rise in college cost. Also many seventeen year old kids don’t understand what owing tens of thousands of dollars in loans will mean for them when they graduate.
There is many people that go to college, but because of the cost they don't get through college. The elevated costs of college cause not only students to struggle paying for college, but also to struggle financially paying for college when they are done. In many cases, after graduating, young adults who don’t find a job will become poorer, increasing the gap between the rich and the
In the heated discussion of college education, one controversial issue has been if the Pell Grant program for inmates would be beneficial as a whole. On the one hand, many in congress argues that a college degree will reduce the recidivism of inmates. On the other hand, some college students contend that it will reduce the amount of aid they get from Pell Grant. My own view is that there should be very strict criteria and that only a small percentage per year be given this great opportunity to receive a college education.
In the quote by Kevin Abdulraham it explains that if an individual can take any disadvantage whether it is psychical or mental and turn it into an advantage can make the drive in the individual unstoppable. Additionally, Banks-Santilli (2015) explains that students who are entering college feel that they are breaking the continuation of their family’s values (Para. 2). This feeling of betrayal can put an emotional toll on the student if they feel that their family does not support their decisions. Additionally, in “First-Generation Undergraduate Students and the Impacts of the First Year of College” Ryan Padgett (2012) explained that students whose parents went to college scored higher on cognitive and critical thinking test than a first generation college student (p. 259). The study finds that the student begins college at a disadvantage than their counterparts because with no prior knowledge of their new surroundings, causing longer time to adapt.
Having free tuition for college means that more people who cannot afford it now, would end up going. This is a good thing in terms that more people are getting a good education and continuing their educational careers to hopefully obtain good job, but it also decrease the value of a college education. If more people are able to earn degrees, it devalues them. Finding jobs even with their qualifications would be difficult (Should college be free?). This idea would also apply to the students, mainly student-athletes, that work for multiple years to try to perfect their skill and obtain full or half scholarship.
He addresses the main argument of college graduates make more than non-college graduates. He goes on to refute it by stating that some graduates are forced to take jobs that non-graduates hold with an ever changing American job market. Nemko concludes his argument by leaving the reader with a list of possibilities and examples for the college and noncollege bound. Overall, Nemko’s argument about sending too many students to college has some effectiveness to it while also having some ineffectiveness to it. He makes good use of pathos and his alternate ideas, but he fails to provide compelling refutes while
A free college tuition is definitely necessary for students because some are paying for college themselves, the college workload is stressful enough, and scholarships, grants, and financial aid doesn’t cover all costs. College tuition should be free because it would create positive changes for people attending college, universities, and the economy. First, most students are paying for their own tuition themselves because either they want to be independent and do so, or because their parents have made that decision for them. According to Newberry, the average cost a year of undergraduate studies at a private university now tops $21,000.
Currently there are 460,000 student athletes in the U.S. according to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Most of these student athletes along with many other people think that they should get paid money by the university that they are attending or by the NCAA for playing a sport for the college and making the college money in that sport. On the other hand, there are also people who think that these college/student athletes should not get paid for many reasons. Most reasons are because the athletes are already accepting scholarships, paying athletes takes away from the purity of game, and the universities should be treating the college athletes the same as their college peers within the school. College students should not get paid because they most likely are accepting scholarships, paying the athletes takes away from the purity of the game, and colleges should be treating the athletes
National Center for Education Statistics says, “An average student who comes to a new state from another state can expect to pay around $28,400 in tuition, fees, books and supplies for an academic year. Adding in an off-campus apartment and other expenses brings that to around $47,500.”(Should College Athletes Be Paid?) Attending college is a huge financial decision for most of the attending students. Though, if you are an athlete this is not the case, the scholarship you receive from the coach will relieve the stress that is put on other students.
According to Storms, the core problem for graduating college students is debt. In the article, Storms explains how we are told that having a bachelor’s degree will double a person 's earning. Even though this may or may not be true, there is still the fear of paying back student loans after graduation. It is obvious that not every degree is guaranteed a job straight out of college in the field one chooses. Storms also gives the story of his family using the fear of debt as an excuse to not to go to college.
These people think the immigrants may drop out of college, then the sponsors will lose the money they provided. Sponsoring Hope will provide a contract, including if the immigrant does not finish their schooling, then they will still be entitled to the money they owe and could be deported. “The best estimate is that in 2003–04, about a quarter of the nation 's 6.5 million degree-seeking community college students came from an immigrant background (Teranishi, Saurez-Orozco, Saurez-Orozco).” This research shows many immigrants are capable of learning challenging college information, but they are not always given the chance to try. Sponsoring Hope will be their chance.
This will cause students to have to transfer or pursue their college degree at another university that has tuition higher than before. After a while, it will become harder and harder for students to acquire education after high school. Many people are saying a bachelor degree now is just like having a high school diploma. Trying to find a job that pays substantially well will become harder than ever before mainly because African Americans or Americans period will have a struggle paying for school.
and they also make arguments of paying college athletes pointless. Most people agree that if college athletes did get paid it wouldn’t be a total shock but it is just not that easy. These kids should just go through college like the alumni did and it will all payoff when they get their first major job paycheck. The point of college is to get you ready for the real world and if college athletes get paid while in college it totally defeats the purpose of college.
Is College Really Worth the Cost? Most American goal in life is to earn a living when they come out of high school. But, maybe it isn’t really necessary that high school graduates need to feel ad if they are being rushed off to college. People who are hustled off to college discover that they would much rather be learning how to build things or fix things. College students and graduates are facing debt, unemployment/ drops in wages, and some would rather learn with their hands.
